67028-01 - Seminar: Thesis Defense Training in Psychology 1 KP

Semester Herbstsemester 2024
Angebotsmuster unregelmässig
Dozierende Angela Leipold (angela.leipold@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt In their thesis defense, doctoral students have to present a summary of their research to a board of examiners and then answer critical questions. This course is designed to prepare the participants optimally for this situation.
In the first part of the course the participants get practical tips for their thesis defense presentation: how to structure the presentation, how to build a sound argument, what language to use, etc.
The second part of the course addresses problems that can occur during the discussion. We look at various types of difficult questions and discuss strategies that the participants can use to respond to them.
In the third part, participants get the chance to practice their presentation and to receive feedback from the group and from the trainer.

Das Seminar wird von Dr. Malte Engel, Institut für Argumentationskompetenz, angeboten.
Lernziele The goal of the course is mainly to help them prepare central elements for the summary of their research that they have to present in the thesis defense, so the course can also be helpful for participants who are still in the writing-phase.
Bemerkungen The workshop is offered by the Graduate School of Psychology.

Maximum number of participants: 10.

Selection criteria:
1. Currently a PhD candidate in psychology
2. First come - first served

GSP rules for withdrawal, absence, or partial course attendance:

If you cannot attend a workshop that you have signed up for, please cancel your course registration as soon as possible by sending an e-mail to angela.leipold@unibas.ch. This will allow other PhD students interested in the course to move up from the waiting list. The GSP strongly values fairness. After the university’s official registration period has ended, cancelled course will be assessed with NE. Course registrations can be cancelled until one week before the workshops begins. In the case of late cancellations, participants will not be considered for course registration in the next three months of the lecture periods and will be removed from the registration list of any course they have signed up during these three upcoming months of the lecture periods.

If an urgent, unforeseeable, or inevitable event before or during the workshop prevents a participant from attending, a written and substantiated withdrawal request that includes appropriate documentation (e.g. a doctor’s note) must be submitted to angela.leipold@unibas.ch within two days of the workshop and without being prompted. The program director decides on the approval of the withdrawal request.

ECTS-points are awarded only for 100% course attendance.
